On sale June 20, The Spy Across the Table is the much-anticipated fourth installment in Barry Lancet’s award-winning Jim Brodie thriller series.
Sometimes-PI Brodie “is in top form” (Kirkus Reviews) in this latest outing, in which he finds himself called to the White House—by the First Lady herself—after a double-murder occurs at the Kennedy Center. It turns out the First Lady was the college roommate of one of the victims, and she enlists Brodie—off the record—to use his Japanese connections to track down the assassin. Homeland Security head Tom Swelley is furious that the White House is meddling and wants Brodie off the case. Why? For the same reason a master Chinese spy, one of the most dangerous men alive, appears on the scene: the murders were no random act of violence.
Forced into a dangerous game of espionage, Brodie finds himself in the crosshairs of the Chinese, North Korean, and American governments. He flies to Tokyo to attend the second of two funerals where Anna, the daughter of one of the victims, is kidnapped during the ceremony. Immediately, Brodie realizes that the murders were simply bait to draw her out of hiding: Anna is the key architect of a top-secret NSA program that gathers the personal secrets of America’s most influential leaders—secrets so damaging that North Korea and China will stop at nothing to get them, forcing Brodie to face off against the spy across the table.
An edge-of-your-seat thriller and a timely behind-the-scenes look at the complex relationship between China and North Korea, The Spy Across the Table is a riveting action-packed addition to Lancet’s wildly popular and highly acclaimed series.
